Description

Scorchers is the first ever pan-Australasian anthology of climate fiction writings. Including pieces both by some of Australia and New Zealand’s most celebrated authors, its sixteen contributors have responded to a deceptively simple provocation: How can writers—and by implication literature—respond within the short fiction format to the overwhelming reality of the climate crisis? The resulting collection of climate-fiction spans rural towns and futuristic metropolises, space stations and back gardens, familiar laneways and underground cities. Its themes of love, loss, despair and tentative hope transcend its immediate settings and speak urgently to the burning issue of our times. Works by Paul Mountfort, Rosslyn Prosser, Emma Ashmere, Moya Costello, Owen Everitt, James George, Patricia Grace, Rachel Hennessy , Matthew Hooton, Witi Ihimaera, Mike Johnson, Carol Lefevre, Renee Liang , Tulia Thompson, Deborah Wardle, Sean Williams, Alison Wong.
